Finally! A bit late to the Instagram party, but here we go! This page will feature various images from our archives as well as new images as they are created. We will comment briefly on some of the technical/creative aspects of the images when possible. Some posts will feature information about upcoming classes as well.

The Tarsier! Amazong little creature found in Southeast Asia. This litrle guy was photographed at a tarsier resrve in Bohol Philippines. A flash was not an option because it would hurt his eyes, so we had to bump up the ISO in the dark “jungle.” #fromautotoawesome#HawaiiSchoolofPhotography##saynototheautomode#learnphotography#photographylessons#essential#photography#workshops#basiclighting

Forgot to share this from Instagram! The decision to crop or not to crop (in camera) is often the difference between a good image and a dramatic image. Conventional wisdom tells us not to crop into our model’s head and this is usually good advice. This image ot Tasha Johnson is beautiful, but tomorrow I will post a cropped image from the same series and let you decide which is more dramatic. (logo cropped out by Instagram.

I posted a fashion/headshot image yesterday of Tasha Johnson. The image, while beautiful, used a “typical” or “conventional” crop—aka, it showed her whole head. Here are two more images from that same series where I purposely cropped tight (In camera). I think the tight crops add a little more tension and interest to the photographs. What do you think? #fromautotoawesome#HawaiiSchoolofPhotography##saynototheautomode#learnphotography#photographylessons#essential#photography#workshops#basiclighting
